America's Cup Pavilion Valencia

America’s Cup Pavilion Valencia – Edificio Veles e Vents

Design: David Chipperfield Architects

David Chipperfield Architects’ ‘Veles e Vents’ building in Valencia temporarily became ‘The Paddock Club’ – the central hospitality venue for the European Grand Prix, in 2008.
Originally built as the hospitality building for the 2007 America’s Cup, and located at the centre of the Valencia Street Circuit, the building’s decks provided incredible 360 degree views of the course, including several corners and the main port-side straight, where drivers reached speeds of up to 320 km/h.

Among the many reasons for Detroit’s decline, two stand out: an undiversified economic model, reliant on the production and sale of automobiles, and an unprecedented degree of sprawl. Detroit is the most job sprawled city in the United States, stretching essential services beyond capacity.
